Belo SunExpert SPF 50 PA+++ Transparent Mist, 100ml
Original Price: P450
Can you already feel summer? Weather's becoming even more hot and humid as time goes by! This is the moment everyone's been waiting for since it's the perfect season to go have summer escapades to deaden the summer heat! Unfortunately, this is also the time where our skin are more prone to damages because of the intense sun's rays. Good thing, I've discovered a sunblock which I can use on a daily basis whatever the weather is without the dreaded white cast and sticky/greasy feeling.
I've know this baby for a long time already but I never got myself to splurge P450 for a single bottle of sunblock no matter how necessary they are. But because of Sample Room, I got one while rejoicing for the fact that I saved more or less a couple of hundred bucks.

Direction For Use
Apply liberally to dry skin before exposure. Re-apply as needed or after vigorous water activities, toweling, perspiring, or prolonged sun exposure. Do not spray directly on the face. Spray on hands and apply to face.
Housed in an amber-colored plastic bottle, it comes with a pump that I sometimes find hard to press. I probably just got a bottle with an issue but I don't believe every single of them would turn out like mine. Still, I like the fact that when I press it hard, the liquid would come out and disperse on my skin, making application easy and effortless. The size is enough to make me bring it conveniently anywhere for quick touch ups. It also has a faint floral scent to it--nothing too bothersome or strangely off.
Texture, Consistency and Ease of Application
Compared to usual sunblock, Belo SunExpert SPF 50 PA+++ Transparent Mist is literally what it is. It is transparent in color, droopy in consistency and reminds me of oil in finish but so much thinner and more lightweight. It is thin enough to get absorbed by the skin with no problem and leaves a sheer glow that lasts. So if you're going to think about it, it's not just a sunscreen but a nice product to give skin a healthy sheen or bronze-like skin perfect to complement your most flattering swimming attire. If you are to use it on a daily basis, just the fact that it gives your skin a healthy boost of moisture plus protection is more than enough.
I had a good road testing period when Ate Rose asked me to accompany her to Divisoria. I wore comfortable clothing which Adrian described as something people would wear when they are just out to the wet market (shorts, t-shirts and flip flops). We left the house at around 10:00 AM that Wednesday morning and you can only imagine the heat when we arrived there at around noon time. So imagine we were there when the sun was the hottest. And though me bringing a single umbrella helped, we all had to share. I had felt my skin on my arms and legs tightened due to heat but we had to endure it for more than a couple of hours because Ate Rose wants to check out the stuff sold at bangketas. Because I was sweating hard and tired from all the walking, I insisted that we go shop at either 999 or 168 because if we don't, I might just collapse. Haha! Don't get me wrong, I can endure heat but it was so hot that day and we were there at noon.
Sorry, I just figure out how long my story was and I didn't even mention the sunscreen anywhere so what makes this a review, right? The point is, I never got tan lines anywhere on my body considering that I get burn easily. Though I was sweating a lot, the mist didn't feel greasy or sticky at all which I really find amusing. That's another factor I was looking for in a sunscreen. Another thing is that it gives my skin a layer of hydration that lasts. I have yet to figure out if this is really waterproof but since I do perspire anywhere in my body and the product did not seem to wear off, there's a good probability that this product really is.
What's even greater about it is that it's a sunscreen that you can spray one moment and then you're good to go. You don't have to wait a few minutes anymore before basking under the sun. See, nothing could hold you back with this! It's fairly mild, non-sting and paraben-free. If you are looking for a sunscreen that's lightweight, mild and effective, you've seen the right thing!
